Nehemiah 3:32 And between the going up of the corner unto the sheep gate repaired the goldsmiths and the merchants.
In Nehemiah 3 we see them start working on the wall around Jerusalem at the Sheep Gate. Here the chapter ends, and they are back around to the Sheep Gate. It began with the Sheep Gate, and it ended there. It all starts with salvation by the death of the Lamb of God, and it will stop there. We are saved and secure by His death. It is Jesus who died for us and purchased our eternal salvation.
The sheep gate was the gate where the sheep came into the city on their way to the temple to be sacrificed. Jesus came from heaven to die for us on the cross of Calvary. John the Baptist announced when he saw Jesus, Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.
Thank God for sending His Son. Praise Jesus for dying for us. Thank the Holy Spirit who pursued us till we were saved. What a wonderful Lord and Saviour we have.
